Classic Sega Saturn rail shooter Panzer Dragoon is getting remade by Megapixel Studios and we now know it's being brought to Switch by Forever Entertainment. Scheduled for release this winter, it'll boast improved graphics (obviously) and controls, bringing the game into the 21st century while being 'true to the original' according to the publisher.
Old school Sega fans will no double remember this and its sequels, including the Xbox game Panzer Dragoon Orta, but check out the above trailer for more of an idea. Suffice it to say that you fly around on dragons shooting stuff and it's pretty great.
Here are some more details from the official blurb:
• Pilot through seven unbelievably realistic levels ranging from tropical blue ocean cities to intricate subterranean ruins.
• Fight the Prototype Dragon who appears together with evil giant dragonflies, frightening man-sized wasps, giant sandworms, and lethal flying battleships.
• Attack approaching from all sides enemies quickly and without mercy, with improved 360-degree controls and lock-on targeting.
The licence is still owned by Sega, but Megapixel are charged with remaking both the original game and its sequel, Panzer Dragoon II Zwei. There's no word on if that's also coming, but we can assume if all goes well with the original, there'll be reason to bring that to Switch as well.
